Home Decor and Wall Art
The first one, is a collage I made after my husband and I got married. It is a slightly religious piece and focuses on the The Family: A Proclamation to the World, which is a little piece of revelation from the Prophet and his counselors of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. For me the family starts with the couple, all the love, respect, devotion, courtesy, admiration in the couple impacts and is reflected in the rest of your family or future family. This is something that is important to both my husband and I and I wanted to capture it. And this is what I cam up with:
This second one, was made as part of a National Scrapbooking Day challenge at Scrapjazz. We were given a necklace from Urban Outfitters as inspiration for something. And this is what I came up with:
I love it. Always have, and always will. It's whimsical, elegant, creative, inspiring, and touching all at the same time. The flowers were all made by me using wide pieces of ribbon. I trimmed photos down to fit inside those Making Memories metal frames, and used some of Tim Holtz's fragments for the patterned paper pieces.
The third piece is a little bit of home I take with me everywhere. I am a natural girl at heart, I love earth, trees, and no buildings. It is grounding, inspiring, calming, and freeing. When I moved to a California for school, I found myself far away from everything I love. So to keep the homesickness at bay and improve my mood, I made this:
This last one was really more just for fun. I was inspired by the stamps and wanted to try stamping with acrylic paint. Again, it is a piece that I am just in love with. Simple and fun, but a captured moment of bliss between my man and me.
I hope you enjoyed today's share and maybe found some inspiration for your own home decor and wall art!
